"Thia ia a mm to which I particularly invite the Senate 1 a 
attention, The filee show two wry interesting facte* k najor portion 
of the file ma removed* Papers refer to information la the f ila which 
la nonexietent. TJjpen contact with tha keeper of the record*, ha stated 
that, to the beat of hia knowledge, tha major portion of the file had been 
renored« Be did not mention any name* but ha said, tJBe waa pnt In ao»a higb- 
fcraee Jo* about 2 years ago«* 

*l aa inclined to think that thie individuals name nay be known from 
the information which I shall give hare* 

*Sfco file ahowe two things* It ahowe, first, that this individual 
had some of hia clothing picked up, with unusual material in it, and* eeoond— * 
and thia ia important— it ahowe that the State Department and tha President 
had prepared material which was to be eent to a foreign government, the file 
ahowe that before the material left the State Department it warn in tha hande of 
tha Kremlin in Voaeow* Do Senators follow net Tha State Department 'a own 
investigative file above that some eeeret material, wfcleh waa being transmitted 
to another nation, before it even left thia country for the other oeuntry* 
showed up in Xoeoow* So far* that ia not too eignificent. However, the file 
shows that this particmlar individual* who has held one of tha *sat important 
poeitione at Me of the listening posts in Europe, waa ahadowed, that ha waa 
found to ha/a oontactad a Soviet agent, and that tha Soviet agent waa then 
followed to tee Soviet Embassy, where the agent turned the material ow to 
tha Soviet Embassy. JDo Senator* follow ma? This la what tha secret State 
Department file shows i First, the papers get to Moscow In some mysterious 
manner, and, second, thia individual, who ia now one of our foreign ministers, 
eontmete a Rueeian espionage agent, and that agent is followed to the Russian 
Fmbeasy, where the material la handed ovwr* Thia ia no eeeret to the State 

•Incidentally, 1 might may that I promised the yraaa I would have 
copies of thia material for their uee* However, In view of the fact that I 
have nothing completely ready at tUs time, and moat refer to the documents 
before *e, which I cannot turn over to the preec, I do not have anything to 
give them, I am eorry* I shall try, however, to give them now the material 
I have, and ahall try to make the dates and places aa clear aa I earn**

This Individual apparently is John Carter Vincent, The Bur»au 
files reflect that we have not conducted any inveatigetlon of Vincent* the 
Bureau filea do, however, contain the following pertinent information re* 
lating to Vincenti 

Vineent hae served in varioua poaitione with the Department of 
State einee 1924* Bureau file© reflect, in brief, that Vineent vat selected 
by former Viae president Henry TTallftoe to accompany aim, Wallace, to China 
and Siberia in the Spring of 19U. Vineent is reported to lie a eloee friend 
of Uuchlin Currie, subjeot in the Sllveraaster eaplonage ease* an Informant 
of the Boaton Office has advised that Vincent 'a name had been on every contact 
list furnished by Communist aut! ora to the publishing f irn of Little, Brown, 
and Company, Boaton, Massachusetts* Major General Patrick J* Hurley, former 
Ambassador to China, is quoted as having testified before a Congressional 
Committee in Beoember, 1945# that State Department career men were trying to 
destroy the Chinese National Government by having American Zend-Lease equipment 
given to Chinese Conaunlate. Barley blaned John Carter Vincent, then Chief 
of the Far Eaatern Division of the State Department, with aetloac which were 
contributory factors toward Hurley's retirement as Ambassador* (121-11900-8) - 

On October 16, 1946, the State Department furnished the following 
infomation concerning Vinoentt 

On September 28, 19-46, a State Department building guard found 
a raincoat in the men's rcon on the first floor of the State Department* 
a search of the pockete revealed papers written in Russian* An examination 
of the papers showed they were the work of a Russian language student and 
no significance wae attached to the papers* On October 4, 1946, John Carter 
Vincent telephoned the Guards Office to inquire what had been done with the 
raincoat* He indicated he knew what had been contained in the pockets of the 
raincoat* Be denied owning the coat but clalaed someone had left It In his 
office. He stated he had borrowed it and Inadvertently left it in the men's 
room* He instructed that the coat be returned to hla office so that he light 
return it to the rightful owner If and when it was called for* The memorandum 
froa the State Department pointed out that it waa believed the coat belonged 
to Vincent although the reason he denied owning it was not known, (62-80659-2) 

An article appeared in the Washington Daily Hews on February 27, 1948, 
under the heading of "fop U. S* Diplomat a Hod Spy?* this article reported that 
the House Appropriations Coaeiittee had developed information during a hearing 
on State Departaeat appreprlatlona which indicated that a confidential White House 



telegram to Chungking, China, reached Voted* before ever leaving Washington* 
It vaa alleged th*t Moscov obtained the telegram through a top United States 
diplomatic official identified only at "Ho, 52*» It vat further indicated 
that investigations had dleeloaed that the diplomatic official referred to at 
$o* 52 ma seen contacting a nan in Washington and eat trailed to the Soviet 
Embassy* The Bureau received information that the individual referred to at 
Ho* 52 tat John Carter Vincent* 

In vlcv of Vlneent*s position, the informatton appearing In Bureasi 
filet concerning him wee furnltbed the Attorney General by memorandum dated 
May 17, 1948, with a request that the Bureau he advlted whether a loyalty 
lnveatlgatlon should he conducted, Mr* Peyton Ford, the Atelttaat to the 
Attorney General, In turn fumlthed thlt information to Ataittant Secretary 
of State, John B* Feurifoy, with the requtat that l*r* Peurifoy adviat «r* 
Ford whether he wished the bureau to oenduct a Loyalty lnveatlgatlon of Vincent* 

JUjr memorandtw dated June % %%B t 3«r. Ford furnished a copy of «r. 
Peurifoy* a reply therein it it ttated that virtually all the information 
regarding Vincent vat in the pOMtteloa of the f tate Department at the Una 
of Vincent 'e appointments that a revlev of Vincent's fall record convinced 
the Department of State of hit loyalty to the t'nlted States* Hth regard 
to the Information tat out above indicating that Vincent vat responsible for 
a confidential Unite Mouse telegram to Chungking, f hina, reaching Moscov 
before ever leaving f ashlngton, jlr» Peurifoy advised that thlt Information 
vat originally reported to the State Department, Division of Security and 
Investigations, by an Informant vho, it vaa subsequently learned, vaa either 
grossly mistaken or misinformed* Mr* Feurifoy further adviaed that the alleged 
original source of this information, deacrlbed as a person of unquestioned 
reliability* subsequently stated to a Special Investigator of the State , 
Department, that he did not know anything about a telegram prepared in 
Washington vhlch reached Voscev before its official release nor did he knov 
anything about Mr. Vincent Shaving been observed contacting a man vho vas later fol- 
loved to the Soviet .Embassy. 

Mr* Ford Suggested that the Bureau revlev such information concerning 
Vincent at vat available in the Seourity filet of the Stste Department* Re 
further ttated, *nalets, hovevar, the Information thus secured, coupled with 
the information now available* products a lead which vould teem to require 
additional Investigation, I do not believe that it is necessary to undertake 
a full field loyalty investigation la thlt ease st the present time*" The 
State Department Seourity file vas revieved and it contained no pertinent in- 
formation not already in the 1 possession of the Bureau* 

The Attorney General was advised by memorandum dated July 13, 1948, 
that no ioyalty investigation of Vincent would he conducted and the State 
Department wis advised by the Xiaison Section on July 16, 1948, that no 
loyalty investigation wild bo conducted* 

Yinoent's Loyalty For* was returned to the Civil Service Cosmission 
on April 18, 1949, with the notation on the reverse side that information , 
available concerning hi» in the files of this Bureau had been furnished to 
the State Departaeat, and that in the absence of a special request, no 
loyalty investigation would be inetituted# (121-llooo-8)

Allegation by Senator McCarthyi 

•Case mater seven* Ihls individual vaa an associate business 
economist to August 1944j with FE* from August 1944 to August 1945, and then 
transferred to the State Department as an economist* This individual is a 
member of the Toung Communist League* He was affiliated with four other 
organisations which are named tor the Attorney General as having been Communist 
fronts* This individual admits membership in the Toung Communists, and in 
the other Coaaaunist-front organisations, but elates to have changed his view 
since that time, and therefore was given top secret clearance by the State 
Department* I nay say incidentally 1 am using the pronoun •he* in all these 
cases, although sane of the individuals are not of the male sex*" 

Possible Identification ! 

the individual apparently is Harcia 2uth Harrison* Bureau records 
reflect that a loyalty investigation was conducted by this Bureau under the 
provisions of Executive Order 9835 regarding Mss Harrison* who, as of Jane 
7, 1949, was employed as a Divisional Assistant, Division of Commercial Policy. 
Department of State, "Sashington, D* C* 

,„,„ ^.^ aa B*™**™* *up1«8 the course of a Jatch Act investigation in 
1942, admitted to Bureau agents in a sworn signed statement that she was a 
member ef the Toung Communist league for tiro or three months in 1938 while 
she was attending Vassar College* Kiss Harrison stated that she stopped 
paying dues as soon aa she left college and ber opinion has changed since 
that date. Miss Harrison also admitted former membership in the American 
Student Vnion and the Washington Committee for Democratic Action in the 
referenced sworn signed statement* 

Kiss Harrison admitted to a representative of the Security Investi- 
gations Division of the State ,flepertaent In 1946 that she was a former member 
of the Washington Boofcahop, the American student Union, the Ifashington Coaaittee 
for Democratic Action, and the young Corasuniat league* 

A reliable Informant advised that Xareia Harrison was in the Toung 
Ccmaunist league at Vassar College and was one of the most active members of 
the library of Congress unit of the Communist Party in 1939* According to 
this informant, Miee Harrison was also r*xy active In the Comeoniat Party 
generally and was closely associated with David labl, Philip o* and Hary Jane 
Xseney, Paul Beswell and Ogden *elly, all of whom have been reliably reported 




as being jaeBbers of the CoasBuniat Party underground group vhich operated in 
Vaehington, !>• C, In -the late 193Q<« and early 1940**. 

Ihforaanta further advised that enqployee 1 * name appeared on the 
active indices of the American Peace ifobiliaation in I.940 and on the indices 
of the TJnited American Spanish Aid Ccaaittee in 2942. 

Ssployee endeavored to Justify aeabershlp in the various mentioned 
organisations by stating that ahe has always been interested In social planning 
and methods of solving social ana, econoaic problems; therefore, ehe had parliei-. 
pated in various organisations in order to understand their ^respective points 
of view* 

?he jCamunist Party, the Xoung Caaaonist leagtfe, the Washington 
Bookshop Association* the Washington Boaadttee for Democratic Action, the 
American Peace Mobilisation, and the United American Spanish Aid Comittee 
have been cited by the Attorney General as organisations cooing within the 

jtccview of 'Executive Order 9$3jj.

front organisations, fie has been cited by the Belly tbrksr a number of 
times for his work. The resords of the industrial detail of the Chicago 
polios department list him as a coomunist as early as 1930. This man's 
file shows that members of the churches In Italy and high officials of the 
Rational catholic Welfare Council objected to his bsing assigned to

netivitiee. Lt. Col. Geyre, of the British Any, v/ae mas this indivlduslis

December 1945 as a translator in the State Department* A report frost 
another Government investigating agency under date of January 9» 1946# advised 
that the subject should be dismissed as a bad security risk because he in 
flagrantly homosexual* He had extremely close connections with other

*I think this is interesting, (ftp* President* 1 asked one of our

This individual apparently is Trial Theodore Arndt, The Bureau 
files reflect we conducted a Loyalty investigation of Arndt from December 14> 
1943, to March 3, 1%9| a Departmental applicant investigation fron June 15, 
1933, to December 12, 1933j an Espionage «- Q investigation from February 20, 
1940, to August 26, 1942$ awi he was afforded an interview under the provisions 
of the Hatch Act on March 4, 1942* (121-13297f 77-9361$ 65-800) 

Investigation has disclosed information that Arndt was reported to 
hare exhibited pro-Hasi sympathies and to have associated with members of the 
German Bsbassy, Investigation developed no evidence of espionage or subversive 

Investigation reflected infornation indicating Arndt possessed hoao~ 
sexual tendencies. In 1938 two acquaintances of Arndt furnished information 
concerning an inoldent indicating homosexual activities on the part of Arndt. 
The ease files revealed that one of these acquaintances on March 2, 1946, 
executed an affidavit for the Secretary of Sate to the effect that this 
acquaintance had never seen Arndt engage or attempt io engage in any immoral 
conduct at any tine, this individual subsequently advised that he afflraed 
the infornation he previously supplied the Tureau in 1933 concerning Arndt 
and stated that the aforementioned affidavit had bam urged falsified by Mr. 
Joseph Fanuoh, who identified hlaself to this Individual as deployed in 
Assistant Secretary of State Russell's office. A sinilar affidavit had been 
exeouted on Heron 13, 1946, by the other above-mentioned acquaintance of 

According to Bureau files, Arndt has indicated he was enployed by 
th« State Departnent from December 6, 1945, to May 13, 1948, when he resigned. 
Be had also been enployed by the State Department in 1936 as a German translator. 
Iron 1936 to 1939, he was enployed by t'-e Peperlaaent of Justice in the Alien 
froporty tivision. In October, 1946, inf oraation was received fron the Office 
of Naval Intelligence t^at Arndt was enployed by the State Department in the 
Special 1?ar Projects, German Ttobasey Croup, in the Office of Beseareh and 
Feeords, It was rerorted by Olfl that at the tine Arndt applied for a position 
with the State Department, the division of Controls disapproved Arndt" s 
appointnent, but this disapproval was overruled by the then Acting Secretary 
of State, whose name was not known, and Arndt was subsequently appointed. 

Case files reflect ttiat Arndt has stated he was dismissed by the 
State Department on February 19, 1946, and was subsequently cleared by the 
Secretary of State who had delegated the case to Deputy Assistant Secretary

Allegations of Senator McCarthy 

"Case No. 32. lhie individual has bean 
with the Oovernaent aince July 1942. 
Be was stationed In the Office of Education 
and Information in the State Department. 
It will be noted aa I go through that 
hlgheet percentage of these indiriduala 
vera stationed in acne information branch of 
the Government. According to the th -American 
Activities Coenittee, he had signed a petition 
in 1940 to the effect that hf was * mestoer 
of the Communist Party. lbs State Department 
took no action whatsoever upon this caes, 
and ao far aa I know, the inveatigative unit 
there conducted no further investigation aa 
to him, tmleaa It ma fairly recently. n 

Possible Identification 

A review of Bureau JT ilea indicatee that the individual referred to 
in the above quotation by Senator McCarthy is apparently Aobert Roes, alee. 
Robert %aenfeld« 

Die Bureau's records reflect that an investigation of this individual 
was conducted aa a Special Inquiry for the State Department under Public 
Law 402, 80th Congress (Voice of America). The request for thia investigation 
was received from the State Department on May 15, 1948, and the results were 
furnished to the State Department on July 15,, 1948 • 

Ihe Bureau's investigation reflected that Robert Hoas was bom Robert 
Hoaenfeld May 27, 1920, in Brooklyn, Hew Tork> and that Ma name wae legally 
changed to Sober* Soea on October 5$ 1942. Hoes waa employed ^uly 1, 1942, 
by the Office of Iter Information, $ew lork City, aa a Junior Editorial 
Assistant; was transferred to the Department of State on January 1, 1946, 
and mas serving as Acting Chief, ftadlo IVogram Branch, International 
Broadcasting Division of the State Department, Item York City, aa of July 15, 194#f 




* e ** ^ '■« 

The indices of the House Committee on Un-American Activities 
reflect that a Sobert Ross was a Section Organiser for the Communist 
party in the 18th Assembly District, Kings County, ihe source of this 
information was given as the February 19, 1941# issue of the "Daily 
Worker" page 5. 1*gs 5 of thia issue of tha *Dally Worker" contains 
a reprint of a telegram received by Farl Browder protesting the decision 
of the United States Supreme Court on February 17, 1941, which resulted 
In Browdar being sentenced to a four year prison term. 3his telegram 
was signed by Robert <toss as Section Organizer for the Section Committee, 
18th Assembly District, Kings County* 

Investigation "by the New Tork Field Division revealed that the 
subject of this case has always resided in the 13th Assembly District, 
Kings County, New lork, wbioh is the 15th Congressional District of 
Weir York. No other Information was developed by which it can be 
definitely proven whether the Robert 3ese mentioned In the "Daily 
Worker* is or is not identical with the Sebert Hoes employed by the 
State Department. {123-977) 

Information contained in the Bureau's files on Robert Ross was 
disss *inated only tc Mr. James T. Lewis, Division of Foreign Activity 
Correlation, Department of State, 515 22nd Street, Northwest, Washington, 
D. C. 

The Bureau^* file on Robert Ross indicates that he was still 
employed by the Department of State as of July 15, 1948.

Obviously. General Marshall did not know anything about the situation. Some one of 
the tinder lings said, 'Get rid of this man.' It would seem to be only the logicsl 
thing that he would not, as his first official act, discharge a man, unless the Ohder 
Secretary said, 'Get rid of him}' which is rather unusual. Here is one man who had 
tried to do the Job of houaeoleaning and tho ax falla. B

Allegations by Senator MoCarthy i 

'This individual came to the United States in 191*0, and was naturalised 
in Alabama in 19l*3. Bo return*! to Germany *» a civilian employe* of the Way 
Department in November, 19l*6. He was appointed by the State Department to one 
of our intelligence departments. Both bis brother and sister ar* listed as 
poaaible agent* of the Comintern* and are active in Communist circles. There was 
evidence reoemwending dismissal. The report is that the evidenoe is sufficient 
to recommend dismissal. There is no information that indicates anything other 
than close Communist connections. Despite this fact, this man was never fired, 
but finally resigned in June, 191*7.* , 

Possible IdenUfioation i 

This individual is apparently Gottfried Thomas Mann. HO investigation 
of him has been conducted by the Bureau. 

According to information in Bureau files Gottfried Thomas Mann, born 
March 27> 1909, la Munich, Germany, applied in the spring of 191*2 to the American 
Consulate General, at Vancouver, B. C.» Canada, for, an Immigration Visa to enter 
the United States as a permanent resident. He was scheduled to reside with his 
parents, Thomas and Katharine Mann at pacific Palisades, California. Cm May lo, 
19l*2, the Interdepartmental Visa Committee ruled unfavorably on .Mann's application 
because he was excluded as an alien enemy by reason of his birth in Germany and 
because of derogatory information concerning one of the sponsors who had Communist 
connections. (hO-2^39) 

The files further reflect that Gottfried Thomas Mann is the brother of 
Erlka Julia Hedwig Auden, also known as Erik* Mann, and Klaus Henrich Thomas Mann. 
It is further reflected in Bureau files that according to information reoeived 
from OKI in 19l*£, Krika Auden was reported to be an active agent of the Comintern 
and reportedly was active in Berlin before Hitler oame into power* Her brother, 
JOeus Mann, was allegedly Stalin's agent in Paris and in 191*1, was editor of the 
imblieation, 'Decision,* supposedly anti-Nazi, but reportedly an actual Communist 
Party publication. (o$-1739*-32) 

This individual is apparsntly identical with "Case #1*7* referred 
to in the material furniehed to i.he Bureau on January 29, I9l*8j by former 
Special Agent Robert :P. Lee on a confidential basis setting forth substantially 
the same information as alleged hy Senator McCarthy. It is noted in this 


connection that the Bureau obtained photoatatic copies of teatiffiony taken 
before the House Appropriations Conaaittee concerning the State Department 
Appropriation Bill for 19h9> Onder the testimony of Hamilton Robinson, 
Director* Office of Control, Division of Security and Investigation, there 
appears information to the effeot that the individual involved in "Case fkl* 
(identified in Ue^s Material as Gottfried Thomas Mann) urns not -employed 
by the State Department, having resigned Hay 26, 191*7* (&-3?7lt9-110?.)

This official added, however, that Carter oould not be classified ae a Ccamunist 
or as a radical* Another official at International Bouse stated that Carter *s 
political views were those of the left-winger but that he was not radical and 
certainly was not Communistic* (77-243U-4) 

William P. Carter was employed for one year a* a private secretary 
to his father Xdward C, Carter, lareetor of the Institute of Pacific Halations.

Branch of the United Public Workers of America* She ie alleged to have taken 
an active part in the anttHJomauniet faction of thie union throughout her 
membership* She resigned :from the union in June, 1948* 

The information pertaining to Carlisle's association with the 
K^oays was furnished to the State Department and as a reeult an investigation 
nam initiated by that Agency in April, 1947* Xn connection with the State 
Department 1 * investigation, Carlisle was interviewed on June 30, 1947* and 
volunteered information relative to her membership in the Southern Conference 
for Human ? If are and the Washington Bookshop Association, both of which 
have been cited ae Communist front groups. Relative to Cerliele's member- 
ship in these groupe she advised that her association ulth the Southern 
Conference for Human Welfare was prompted Jby her interest in improvements 
in the South; the association with the Washington Bookshop mas based on a 
recommendation by Ifcxy Jane Xeeney* In thie connection she allegedly 
discontinued her activity when she bream* auspicious of the intent of

Bureau records reflect that we wade *n Investigation of this peraon

and in September, lJrtO., signed two Communist Party nominating pe- 
titions in Bew York City. Reliable informants linked Jeanne Taylor 
with individuals connected with Cenmunist front organisations who

and reported that Wilcox had bean in association with Ellsworth Bayaond, 
Villlaa H. S. Johneon, hia wife, Annette Jox Johneon, and Jeeeie Bubin,

Pox Johneon, all of whoa were eaployed together In the Military Intelligence 
Service of the War Departaant, ware luepeoted of being responsible for a

bean an HKvD agent, or closely associated with the MKVD. Johneon waa 
suspected of passing information through his wife to David Pox, or to 
David Pox directly* Ellsworth Raymond la Berried to Anna Palaaova, a 
Soviet National, who waa reliably reported to have been an HKVD agent. 
War Departaant reoorda reflected that Johnson, hia wife, Annette, and 
Elleworth Raymond ware relieved of their eaployaant with the War Departaant 
in November of 1946 because of a reduction in force, thia action was taken

Peter irae classified as a conscientious objector by the 
Selective Service Board at the beginning of World War II but later 
enlisted in the United States Aragr Medical Corps* Peter's attitude 
my have been due to the influence of his father who was a pacifist 
during World War !♦ (121-1397-1X44, Page 12; 121-1397-12, Page 23) 

Duxing the early 1940*» Peter Joined In a car pool to ride' 
to work with several individuals who were reported to be Comunist 
eyppathiter*. These associates were reported to have been jaeabers of 
CotoBomist front organizations and one was known to have been in fre- 
quent contact with a local Comaunist Party functionary* (121-1397-12) 

Jh 1943 Peter received copies of n Xn Fact" and "Soviet Russia 
Today*, through the mail, however, there is no positive information that 
he was a subscriber. Both of these publications were cited as Coawunist 
fronts by the Special Coomittee on un-Aiaeriean .Activities, House of 
Representatives, on March 29, 1944. (100-861-27, Page 7j 121-1397-12, Page 14) 

la 1943 on co<*pletion of the Hatch Act investigation Peter was 
intend wed* He denied any Ccoraunist Party affiliations but did admit 
haying received Coaaunlst Parly literature from time to time* He claimed, 
however j that he had not received *ny Communist Party literature for 
several years. (100*861-2?) 

Peter la reported to have stated that he shared a car pool with 
William Walter Hemington in 1946* An informant has also reported that Peter 
was in frequent contact with Remington in 1946* Remington was a close 
contact of persons suspected of Soviet espionage in Washington, £« 0«. in 
the early 1940 f s« (121-1397-12) 

&ireau files reflect that pertinent reports on the results of 
the Hatch Act investigation were furnished to IU K* Ifoore of the State 
Department, i*llitajy Intelligence and the Interdepartmental Committee on 
Bnployee Investigations* 

The loyalty reports were furnished to the United States Civil 
Service Comission and the Criminal division of the Dejpartment of Justice* 

The latest communication from the Waited States Civil Service

Allegations by Senator McCarthy 

Case No* 6$ *► *This individual Is also still In the State Department 
In the Office of Inforaatlon wnd Education and holds en inportent position* It 
would appear from his activities that he is very definitely cowunistioally 
inclined^ However, it is entirely possible that this individual is Merely a 
left-winger *bo has been dealnsted by So. 81, 1*0 will be ocvered later, and a 
group of OoBamnists and fellow travelers «ho have surrounded Ho* 81, to the 
extent that he has reeeived credit for aany of the ccewunist activities of 
Ho* 81* By No. 81 I refer to the ease shleh I shall oover shortly, for that 
reasoni while the work flowing fron Ms of flee would Indicate that he Is 
sympathetically inclined at least toward ccaanmlsts, I would hesitate in 
l eballng bia as suoh. In any event, however, I feel that he certainly is a bad 
risk in that position." 

Possible Identification 

This individual is possibly identical with Victor Myron Hant, born 
on October 7, 1*08, in Hapa, California, on who* the^Bareau has conducted 
applicant-type Investigations under Public Law 1(02, 80th Congress (Voles of 
Aaerica), and the Atonic Energy Act of l?ii6* 

The investigation under the Voice of America prograa, vMch was 
begun on May 27, l?ii8 and which was ooncluded on July 6, l$Jt8, elicited 
Inforaatlon trm a confidential source that Hunt while a student at the University 
of California, Berkeley, California, had 'leftist tendencies* which were described 
as "flirting with Cowuniaa*j and while employed at Ban Jose State College in 
San Jose, California, lectured fully and thoroughly on Comunlm and students 
reported to "this saas source that he was an advocate of Socialism pr Cenwanissu 


The investigation under the Atonic Baergr Act, which was begun on 
Hay 18, l$h9 and which was concluded on June 17, l«l»9, elicited Inforaatlon frow 
a oonfidentlel source that there was *ever any question as to where Ruby Parsons 

*,« (case Ho. 81) stood as she supported polioles synpathetlc to the Russian 

uH—flovenaent and the fact that Victor Hant, her superior, supported her polioles

Allegations by Senator McCarthy 
Case Ho. 74 

•This Individual was employed on an American mission to the Far 
East during 1947* Intelligence units indicated, that he was furnishing 
information to a Russian agent, and tiro sources of information reported 
that he mis representing himself as an American intelligence agent. At 
that time he had been given clearance to confidential information. He 
mas relieved of his particular assignment and transferred to different 
work within the Department** 

Possible Identification 

5he above captioned individual is possibly identical with the ■ 
person described In cast nuaber 74* A loyalty form mas submitted bjr 
the Department of State for Joseph Thaddaus Jankowski on October 8, 1948* 
A review of the Bureau files disclosed that a copy of an incoming telegram 
to the Department of State from Shanghai, China, dated September 8. 1947 
was received by the Bureau* This telegram which was signed bf "Davis* 
stated that the State Department in Shanghai had received a confidential 
report which "raises seme question as to the dependability and poesibly 
the loyalty of Joseph ?♦ Jenkoweki, who at times in the course of hie 
work has custody of highly olaesified material. Requests have been 
forwarded to other channels for an investigation of his background, early 
associations and record in the U. S#, and pending the outoome, hie assign- 
ment in thie offioe is being ohanged to one that will not give him access 
to any classified material*" Because of this information the employee was 
temporarily refused permission to bring hie femily to China. A preliminary 
inquiry was initiated concerning Jankcweki* It was determined through a 
review of the Personnel Records of the State Department that Jankcweki 
entered on duty March 11, 1947, as a clerk in the Amerioan Consulate in 
Shanghai, China} that he resigned December 29, 1947 effective January 10, 
1948* Ms personnel file was reviewed at the State Department and it was 
noted that a copy of a report dated August 28, 1947 had been received by 
the State Department, which report was prepared bgr Vice-Consul, Barry D. 0. 
Carroll and that hie file also contained a oopy of a memorandum dated October 
6, 1947 prepared by the Administrative Consul of the Consulate General, 

t*4 commenting upon Carroll *a report and his more recent aotivitiee* The 

J2 L memorandum stated that a review Md been made of all information available 

ii ^ at Shanghai relative to the activities of Jankowski. It was further 

*>~q indicated that Robert V. Burwell, Assistant Commercial Off icer of the 

t*«? Consulate had advised that about the middle of June he had received word 




that Jaakowskl vat 111 . me called at Jankowski's home and found his la 
bed. According to the memorandum It wae Burwell'a opinion that Jankowakl 
waa suf faring from or«r Indulgence and lack of elcep. At tha time of tht 
visit Jankoweki told Borwell ha had been arreated by the Chlneee Polloe 
and that he had been held incommunicado for almost two days, however, he 
gave no roaeon why they should apprehend him. 

It mas alao noted that the file oontalnad a memorandum dated 
Kay 22, 1947, addreeaed to Fata Meyer of the Consulate, which We reeelred 
from 'the External Survey Deteohment #44, V. 3. Havy, which pointed oat that 
a few lnformanta In Polish olrolee in Shanghai had aaked if Jankowskl waa 
an Intelligence off leer. thie inquiry waa baaed on the fact $h£t he had 
aaked questions similar to thoee which woald have been aeked by an intelli- 
genee officer, there waa no assertion that he had ever poeed ae an intelli- 
gence officer* 

It waa determined that information had alco been reeelred froei 
the sane source that their Informant obtained a story from a wan who 
admitted he wae a Soviet agent to the effect that he waa utilising the 
ssrvlees of Jankowakl in oonncetlon with eommeroial traaaaotione. the file 
alao oontalnad a memorandum dated October 6, 1947 from Jaw B, Piloher, 
Admlnietrative Counael, advlsicfe the State Department that Jankoweki*e report 
about being detained by the Polloe wae apparently *Bked> to cover an 
lndlecretlon and abeenoe Iron work. It wae alao indloated that Jankowakl elnce 
hie indiscretion had feigned a elekneee of the am. A euggeetion wae made 
that a complete Investigation be made, however, before it waa inetltnted, 
Jankowakl wae aealgned to Tanle by way of Vaehington, D. 0., for consul tetlon 
and when he returned to the United Statee he eubmltted hie reelgnation January 
10, 1948. Vo further inquiry wae made by the Bureau in thie loyalty oaee. 

On October 12, 1948, Jankowakl wae interviewed by Bureau Agent in 
Philadelphia ae a translator Applicant, the interviewing agent Indloated that 
Jankowakl appeared to be capable ae a Poliah tranelator, however, hie personal 
oberaeteriatlee and hletory were euoh aa to make hie employment with the 
Bureau undeelrable. According to the interviewer'e report Jankowakl waa 
employed by the State Department in Shanghai, China from Mareh to Deecmber 1947 
aa a clerk and at the eame time aoted aa an underoover informant for OIC 
without the knowledge of the State Department, thie apparently caused him 
difficulty with consular officials and wae recalled to the United Statee and 
t^nef erred to tunlslm, whereupon he resigned. It waa alao stated in the 
interviewer's report that Jankowakl olalmed that while la China he waa drugged 
and abducted by Chlneee Police who elsimed that he waa drunk and reported him 
to the State Department. It wae alao indicated that Jankowaki*a wife in 1948 
epent several weeks in a Philadelphia peyohiatrio hospital, furthermore, 
Jankowekl bad a calcified buraa in hie left arm which limited the mov eme n t of 
the arm. Vo motion wae taken on the application of Jankowakl due to the 
interviewer's recommendation. (67-435430-2)

tip to tha prasent time, excapt for military ralaasa from July, 1942, to December, 
1942* Stata Department files show that he was highly recommended by two individuals 
engaged in Soviet espionage activities* Another Government investigative agency 
indicated that he was one of the contacts of the subject of a Soviet espionage 
ease* One of Ms references refused to recomnend him because of his association 
■with pro-Conwunists. This individual Is still holding a high-salaried position 
with the Treasury Department, in work, as X understand, direetly with the Stata 

Feasible Identification! 

This individual is possibly identical with Andrew Martin Xamarek, 
who was born November 10, 1914, at Newton Falls, New Xork, and whoee loyalty 
form and Economic Cooperation Administration application form, filed in 1948, 
reflected that he, Xamarek, had been employed as Chief of Division by U* S* 
Treasury from April, 1940, nith the exception of period between July, 1942, and 
December, 1944, whillei he was in the U. S. Army. 

A review of main Bureau files reflects that a preliminary loyalty 
investigation was opened on Andrew martin Xamarek on Jfay 26, 1948, on the basis 
of Bureau report dated June 5, 1946, at Saehington, in the case entitled "Hathan 
Gregory Silvermaster, was., at alj Espionage - R.» This report indicated that a 
maU cover on tha mail of the subject, William ludwig Ullman, reflected that 
Ullman received a letter from S. L. Klepper, who waa in the U* 3* Army in Europe* 
In this letter, ELepper requested Ullman to give his regards to "Greg, Helen, and 
Andy Xamarok." (65-36402-1210, p. 161). Alao, Bureau report dated November 19, 
1946, at "Tashington in the same case stated that Dorothy Taylor, wife of subject 
in lnatant case, related that she and her children were staying at the Xamarek 's 
house, 6905 Beverly Road. (65-56402-1909, p. 140). 

The files of the Washington Field Of floe reflected that Andy Xamarek 
was listed as a reference by Bruce laybur in his Civil Service application, and 

w that ^aybur was the subject of a Hatch Act investigation in April, 1942, his name 

«h« being on the membership list of the ^shington Bookshop Association as a lifetime

applicant type investigation for Economic Cooperation Administration were sent 
to the Civil Service Commission for their oonelderation tinder the Loyalty Program)* 
Treasury f Uee reported that In July, 1948* Kamarek was recommended by the 
Secretary of treaeury to become Treaeury Representative to the American Kmbacey 
in Borne, and left for this assignment around September 1, 1943* Further, that

during Jfay, 1945, invited Sidney Leeter Kleppcr and Bill Taylor to his residence 
for dinneri that Taylor was involved In a Soviet espionage conspiracy in the 
District of Columbia during the early 1940* sj further, that Taylor was a dues- 
paying member of the Communist Party and a contact tor Soviet agents* The files 
of the ilouse Committee on Un-American Activities Indicated Klepper was a member 
of the Washington Committee for Democratic Action in 1940* This committee oomoe 
within the purview of Bxeoutive Order 9835* 

In addition, this investigation revealed that Hsrry Dexter White had 
asked BUI Taylor if Andy Kamarek had returned to the United States, and that 
White *as involved in a Soviet oonepiracy during the early 1940* s+ " Treasurj 
Department records indicated that both Taylor and Ihlte were employed by the 
Treasury Department at that time, and that Taylor was Assistant Director of 
Monetary Research and White was Assistant Secretary of Treasury* 

In addition, this investigation revealed that Dick and Xliubcth 
Sasuly advised that Dick had told Jack Burke to see Kamarek during Jnly, 1946, 
as Kamarek may be able to place Burke in a position at the Monetary Research in 
the Treasury Department* Sasuly had been in close contact with persons believed 
to be engaged In Soviet espionage and Communist Party activities such as Bob 
Ball, Washington representative of the *Daily Yorker" and a member of the National 
Committee of the Communist Party* 

Co-workers and references all recommended Kamarek and believed any 
association with former Treasury Department employees Oilman, Taylor, Wilts, 
Silvermamter, and Ifaytar wae strictly from a business standpoint! also, In ad- 
dition, the investigation revealed that Andrew Kamarek 1 e brother, Frank Martin 
Yamarek, and wife, Esther, ar# known members of the Kings County Communist 

^uv* 6, JU ,. , , T arty at Brooklyn, Mew Tork, and are both active, absorbed, and sealous Com*

Copies of all dnveetlgative report* on Andrew Martin Kaaarok were 
forwarded the Seonomle Cooperation Administration and the Civil Service Com- 
mission on October 27, 1940* 

letter dated October 25, 19-48* fro* the Economic Cooperation Administra- 
tion adtiaed that Andrew Kamarek ma* one of four individuals whose services had 
been terminated, and requested that any further investigation be discontinued, 
(124-U74, P. 12) ♦ 

letter dated January 28, 1949, from Seth W, Richardson, Chairman, 
loyalty Review Board* 0, S, Civil Service Comraiseion, wade reference to Andrew 
Martin Xaaarok, Treasury Representative, Aaerioan Embassy, Treasury Department, 
Rome, Italy* Employee was cheeked as "retained, " (This disposition was ap- 
parently based on the full field investigation for Economic Cooperation Administra- 
tion, copies of which were sent to Civil Service). 

The files fall to reflect Kamarek was ever employed by the State Depart- 
ment, it being noted that the individual mentioned in Case Ho, 78 had made 
application for a I*-8 position in the State Department, 

Also, according to Senator McCarthy* a statement, one reference refused 
to reeonmiend the .individual mentioned because of his association with pro- 
Communists, It will be noted the five references interviewed in the Seonomle 
Cooperation Administration investigation reoommended Kamarok and furnished no 
derogatory information concerning him. 

In addition, according to Senator McCarthy's statement, the individual 
referred to hae been employed by the Treasury Department from 1940 to the present, 
except for military release from July, 1942, to December, 1942. It will be noted 
that the files reflect Xamarek has been employed by the Treasury Department since 
April, 1940, with the exception of the period between July, 1942, and December, 
1944* *hile he was in the V. S. Army, (124-1174)*
